Firehouse Sessions – Amanda Shires

Play

In the studio today for a new Firehouse Session is Amanda Shires. Amanda Shires is in town for her show as opener for Richard Thompson at the Buskirk Chumley Theatre whilst touring her new album “Down Fell the Doves” Besides making music as a solo artist, Shires also tours with husband Jason Isbell.

When Amanda Shires goes on tour, she meets a lot of interesting people. Once after a show in Tampa, Florida, a fellow calling himself Tiger Bill handed her a mysterious bag — whose contents, he said, would make her “bulletproof.”

SONGS
“Swimmer”
“Bulletproof”
“A song for Leonard Cohen”

Hosted by Angela Backstrom

Executive Producer is Jim Manion

Firehouse Sessions – Shovels and Rope

Play

Much is made of the on-stage chemistry between husband-and-wife Americana duo Shovels & Rope, who solder their harmonies with steady eye contact. During their visit to the WFHB studios, Cary Ann Hearst laughed it off, “We’ve been married for about ten thousand years!” Michael Trent backed her up, saying that the glances passed between them during sets are not about romance: “It’s communication. We’re talking about music.”

The Charleston-based band’s second album, 2012’s O’Be Joyful, made them stars on the country folk scene, with the single “Birmingham” picking up song of the year honors at the Americana Music Awards. Swimmin’ Time, released last summer, has resulted in even more national exposure, but the duo is sticking to their insulated DIY ethos. They talked with host Katie Moulton about collaboration, touring, and what they never leave home without (hint: it has paws).

Firehouse Sessions – crash

Play

photo 5The artist known as crash paid a visit to the WFHB studios while on tour with the Communion clubnight series. An erstwhile member of the Magnetic Zeroes, crash recently released his solo debut, Hardly Criminal, and its lead single “Motional Animal” has been a hit among our volunteer deejays.

A Louisiana boy now living in California, crash brings a distinctive busker charisma to his folky, funky soul sound. Also impressive was his current touring band, assembled just a week earlier, which he dubbed the “Holy Trinity” and whose backing vocals beautifully supported crash’s powerful “Cajun Prince” falsetto.
